Spectator Policies

FMC Ice Sports COVID-19 Guidelines

We have recently released updated SOPs for all of our facilities. The full version is included in the button above but some highlights include:

Face coverings are required throughout the entire building. Coaches / instructors / officials are not exempt from the face covering rule when on the ice.

Up to 2 parents/guardians/chaperones and siblings may accompany a youth participant but it is encouraged that the parent/guardian/chaperone return to their vehicle or the parking lot (socially distanced) when possible. All spectators must maintain social distance and wear a mask at all times.

No spectators are allowed for activities involving adults 21 and older.

Do not enter the rink until 10 minutes before your skate.

Participants on the ice must be in cohorts (groups) of no more than 25 and socially distanced as much as possible. Two cohorts may use the same sheet of ice but must be separated by 14' in all directions and the total cannot exceed 25 including coaches. No movement between cohorts is allowed.

Coaches / instructors must wear a face covering and are included as part of the cohort.

Participants on the bench are not considered part of the 25 cohort so teams sharing ice may rotate players on the bench so long as the players remain in the same cohort at all times and the number on the ice does not exceed 50 total.

Team rooms are closed. Please follow instructions and diagrams on site regarding storage of equipment during your skate and changing out of equipment at the end of your skate.

Face coverings are required while on the player bench, in the penalty box, and during stoppages in play. Skaters must maintain social distancing while on the player benches.
